We are proud to be a recognised and approved Royal Yachting Association Training Centre. This association means that all our operating procedures, staff to pupil ratios, risk assessments and competencies are regularly and vigorously inspected by the RYA.
We follow the RYA coaching method and award scheme. Our courses are run for the 8-18 age group and the teaching will be tailored to the needs of the individuals. The courses include the 'RYA Youth Sailing Scheme' for the less experienced, through to high performance courses such as ‘RYA Sailing with Spinnakers’. For detailed breakdown of the RYA syllabus content click here.
For adults we run the 'Have a go' Sailing Weekend which serves as an introduction to dinghy sailing, normally in the Wayfarer. You will be given some basic seamanship theory training, help rig and launch, and have a go at controlling the rudder, main sail and jib, or just sit back and enjoy the experience.
Our instructors are all qualified, experienced and sympathetic, and importantly, are key to setting and delivering the right ‘tone’ in order that every person who steps into one of our boats, gets the very most from their day.
Our fleet is looked after by our full time Bosun who as well as being responsible for the day to day safety and appearance of the fleet, is also responsible for updating and replacing on a regular basis. We have well over 30 boats including Picos, Wayfarers, Visions, Fevas, Longboats, Catamarans, Buzzs and Lasers. In addition, we own and operate a number of safety boats including RIBs, Jaffas and passenger carrying vessels.
The wide variety within the fleet facilitates the wide range of courses we offer from novices through to advanced sailors.
